David or Aerowood,

Do either of you by chance have photos of how my frame is supposed to look in the back? Or where I might find such photos? The last 5-6 feet of the frame is a mess…. but oddly I think the rest of the frame is pretty solid. The rear area rusted off long ago, so I don’t know exactly how the beams, cross beams and bumper all connect and interact. I've reached the point of figuring out what needs to be done to the frame, so first I need to understand how it should look, so I can wrap my head around what needs to happen.

Aerowood.... any good ideas on where/who can do frame work/welding here in the Denver area?

There are some threads showing the frame of a sixties Trade Winds.

Here is one enthusiastic vintage Airstream rebuilder that has some photos of his 68, with and without the foam insulation. See post #30.

There have been significant changes since 61. I think yours was the first year of the Dura Torq axles, of which some were welded on.

I'll try to remember another one. I've seen pictures of frames, but I wonder if they have enough detail to help you. My rear bumper is welded to the frame rails. There is the infamous angle iron that the rear of the body bolts to. And the outriggers need to mirror the good side of your frame. Your body and C-channel dictate how the frame will be.

I didn't remove my shell, just replaced the rear 42" of subfloor under the bath. This is the best picture I could find of the rear of my frame. At least you can see the rear cross member.

I forgot about ol' PaducahCat. He's building a 64 Overlander. He has some good frame pictures, try post #42.

For those still viewing this thread, I think we are going to have to part ways with the AS. Life changed all the sudden and I don’t think I’ll have the time. If you know of anyone who may be interested in buying, let me know.

Hi,

Take some pictures as is and post them in the Classifieds of these Air Forums. I think crazy people are always looking for vintage project trailers. Take pictures, describe the trailer. There is a chance someone may be interested.

David

The shell and frame have been sold. I still have the fridge, stove, sink, toilet, wood, interior fiber glass endcaps and some light fixtures. Anyone interested, let me know asap as I'm now very motivated to get rid of these items.
